mannequin bike?

My google-fu is weak. I recall seeing a bike made around a female mannequin either here or somewhere else - anyone have a link to the image?

thanks

Sex is normal, yes. Does that look like sex to you? It doesn't to me! Do I think it's neat and vary imaginative in the right setting, yes. It's just the thing to have your little 8 year old daughter see while she's out shopping at that center. Believe it or not, that could have some bad lasting effects on her. What I think would even be neater is to see the guy going down the road at 20 mph on that and run right into a brick wall front wheel first!!!

The world can't revolve around what might be considered appropriate for an 8 year old girl. That's why she has parents to protect her. I won't give my opinion of the bike, but I'll bet it's not exactly what you think.

Seeing a cyclist hit a wall at 20 mph might not be considered "appropriate" for a child.

Or, it's just the first time something upset him enough to register so he could comment. It's not an uncommon point of view, after all.

No, it can't and it doesn't revolve around and 8 year old girl. But at one time not too long ago, at least in the USA, it did with things like that. And I'm not talking about Govt. control/laws; I'm talking about a thing called respect. I said the bike was neat and had a lot of imagination, but not where it's at in a public place. Would I like to see it, probably, but not with my son when he was a child.

You said, "That's why she has parents to protect her." So how would a child’s parents protect them from something like that when they walk around a corner and it's in their face?

I don't know, maybe that might work to the child’s advantage seeing the lowlife smashed up beyond recantation on that bike. And no, even though I think he's a lowlife for what he's doing there in a public place, I really wouldn't wish that on him.

Cool concept, but better to keep it as a home decoration or ridden in an adult only area, where ever that might be.

It would have better to have her arms as the forks.

Yeah, the fork through the neck bothered me more than having a mannequin in public.

I'd use the arms as forks like jokotobling suggested...
